Angels hitting coach Dave Hansen will not return for the 2018 season.
Anaheim finished 22nd in runs scored in 2017, despite having Mike Trout for 114 games. Hansen had served as the club's hitting coach for the last four years. He previously worked as a hitting coach for the Mariners and the 48-year-old former major leaguer was as a hitting instructor for the Dodgers before that. Oct 4 - 12:10 PM

Mike Trout went 1-for-2 on Sunday in the Angels season finale victory against Seattle.

The hit was a single. Trout finishes with a ridiculous .306/.442/.629 with 33 homers, and yet, you can't help but wonder what kind of numbers he could have put up if not for missing time with the thumb injury. Nevertheless, he's still the best player in baseball, and should be the top pick in fantasy drafts no matter the format.

Mike Trout homered in the first and eighth innings Friday to lead the Angels to a 6-5 win over the Mariners.

Trout's second homer was part of a four-run rally in the bottom of the eighth. The first homer was actually the 200th of his career, making him the eighth player in major league history to reach 200 by the end of his age-25 season. The last was his current teammate, Albert Pujols. Trout's OPS for the season is up to 1.084, which would be a personal best by 93 points over his .991 marks from 2015 and 2016.
Sep 30 - 2:16 AM

Mike Trout had a three-run homer and two walks as the Angels topped the White Sox 9-3 on Tuesday.

The .450 OBP is still in play for Trout, who stands at .446 right now. No American Leaguer has come in at .450 since Manny Ramirez in 2002. Trout finished at .441 in leading the league last year.
Sep 26 - 11:35 PM

Mike Trout hit his 30th homer, walked and stole a base Monday in a losing cause versus the White Sox.

Trout hit 29 homers in 159 games last year and still won an MVP award. This year, he has 30 in 109 games. He also has career highs in OBP (.444) and slugging (.623) with six days left to go.
Sep 25 - 11:47 PM

Mike Trout went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday’s loss to the Astros.

Trout had a chance to play hero in the ninth inning, as he represented the potential tying run, but he grounded into a double play against Astros’ closer Ken Giles. He’s the greatest player on the planet and continues to get on base at a ridiculous clip, but his September has been rather quiet compared to his usual lofty standards. He’s hitting .231 (15-for-65) with two homers, five RBI, six steals, and 15 runs scored over 19 games.

Mike Trout was on base all four times up Thursday against the Indians, going 2-for-2 with two walks.

His career-best OBP is up to .450 now. It looks like Trout is going to end up qualifying for the batting title despite missing more than 40 games with a torn thumb ligament. He has a chance to be the first American Leaguer to finish with a .450 OBP since Manny Ramirez in 2002.
Sep 21 - 7:32 PM

Mike Trout blasted his 29th homer run as the Angels fell to the Rangers on Sunday afternoon.

His solo shot off of Matt Bush in the eighth inning pulled the Halos to within two runs at 4-2, but that would be as close as they would get. Trout also chipped in a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. He finished the afternoon 1-for-2 plus a walk and was also caught stealing. He's slashing a mighty impressive .315/.452/.638 with 29 bombs, 65 RBI and 21 stolen bases.
Sep 17 - 7:09 PM

Mike Trout will hit leadoff Saturday against the Rangers.

Yes, you read that correctly. It will be Trout's first action out of the leadoff spot since way back in 2013. Brandon Phillips has been handling leadoff duties of late, but he's out of the lineup Saturday after leaving Friday's game with tightness in his side.
Sep 16 - 5:40 PM

Mike Trout slugged his 28th home run of the season as the Angels defeated the Mariners 5-3 on Sunday afternoon.

Trout got the scoring started in the ballgame with a solo shot off of Erasmo in the first inning. He also drew a walk in the game, finishing the afternoon 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. The superstar outfielder is slashing .321/.458/.650 with 28 homers, 62 RBI and 20 stolen bases on the season.
Sep 10 - 7:56 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and two runs scored in the Angels' loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

The beat goes on. Trout owns an MVP-worthy .333/.466/.670 batting line with 27 home runs, 61 RBI, 17 stolen bases, and 78 runs scored in 90 games this season for the Angels, who remain right in the mix in the American League Wild Card race. A late-May thumb injury is the only thing that will keep Trout from running away with the award.
Sep 3 - 7:18 PM

Mike Trout went 4-for-4 with a homer, a triple, a walk and four runs scored versus the A's on Wednesday.

Trout scored four runs for the second time in his career. He raised his average to .327, which would be a new career high if he maintains it. Because he missed a chunk of time, he will fall short of new highs in homers and RBI. Still, barring a bad September, this will go down as his best offensive season to date.
Aug 31 - 1:49 AM

Mike Trout (neck) is in the lineup and will hit second in Wednesday's game against the A's.

Trout sat out the past two days with a stiff neck after running into the outfield wall in Sunday's series finale against the Astros. The American League MVP candidate is slashing a gorgeous .318/.452/.646 with 26 homers, 60 RBI and 15 steals in 86 games this season.
Aug 30 - 6:29 PM

Mike Trout (neck) is out of the Angels' starting lineup again on Tuesday versus the Athletics.

Trout remains day-to-day with a stiff neck after banging hard into the outfield wall during Sunday's series finale against the Astros. Cameron Maybin will start in center field and bat leadoff Tuesday night against Oakland right-hander Chris Smith. Ben Revere is in left field and hitting second.
Aug 29 - 7:02 PM

Mike Trout is not in the Angels' lineup Monday due to a stiff neck.

He banged into the outfield wall Sunday and is a little sore, although he's expected back Tuesday. Trout is in a rare slump, going hitless in his last 17 at-bats and also picking up only three hits in his previous 31 at-bats. Cameron Maybin will cover center field and Ben Revere will be in left.
